I think that particular Savage is a GREAT option. I obsessed over building a .338 Fed AR for a long time vs buying the Savage and just when I was ready to pull the trigger on the Savage they dropped it from production. Of course I could probably find one on BG or similar, but the bubble kind of burst for me and I went on to focus on bolt guns instead for a while. I thought Savage had some great upgrades on their MSRs, but it looks like they have dropped them altogether. What a shame. Is this the one you have, the Hunter model?
